No one is like you

Posted in Uncategorized by trishbendix on March 4, 2008

Jamie and I were having a serious discussion about word counts last night and cracking ourselves up over a number typo in an e-mail she received from an editor. The assignment is a profile of a fashion designer with 10 facts on why they are fabulous, but the editor mistyped it as 20.

“Yes, we need 20 facts about this person,” Jamie said.

“Actually, 200. Really, we would like the whole magazine to be about this person, essentially,” I said. After a minute I asked, “Do you think that other people would think is nearly as funny as we just did?”

“Like if Michelle was over right now? She would be like ‘what?’ We should try it next time–just start saying ‘Oh my god, Michelle. I have to write a 100-word intro! Can you believe it?'”

“Or ‘how am I ever going to do this 75-word CD review?!?'”

I’m now thoroughly convinced no one will think is nearly as funny as Jamie and I did last night.
